Turkey Day Prep

Welcome back to More with Music!

As I was reading over my to do list this week I had "blog post" written in bold marker and underlined twice.  It's been on my to do list for quite awhile, but I had to put the blog posts on the back burner in order to keep up with work and life.

Today I'm going to share songs I've been singing in classrooms to get us ready for turkey day.

This week the students have really been enjoying getting up out of their seats and dancing around.  We've been doing the "Turkey Trot"....a lot!

I haven't found an age group yet that doesn't request "Pumpkin Pie" every session.  We sing it with actions and then get the rhythm instruments out and assign parts for each action in the song.  This song wins the award for being catchy and sticking in your head all day long!

Lastly, the younger students are doing a great job learning their colors and learning to sequence items in a song.  The repetitive lyrics in this song give confidence to young singers in my groups.  We also added sign language for each color mentioned in the song.

What have you been singing this week?
